Christmas Freebie

I am always reviewing grammar skills with my students.  I made this 2nd grade Christmas grammar review to share with you.  The skills covered in this review include making plurals by adding s or es, adding commas, capitalization, synonyms, syllables, and identifying nouns and verbs.  Click on the picture for your copy.

Last night I got back from a wonderful trip in Las Vegas. I did lots of shopping and ate at many wonderful restaurants. One of my favorite places to eat in Vegas is Wing Lei and SW Steakhouse at Wynn. At this time of year it is always fun to look at all the beautiful decorations!


Hope you have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
Thanks for visiting my blog.  I love to hear your comments!


Turkey Time

 My class made these adorable turkeys. The pattern is from Glyph Girls. I put a bow on the head if they were a girl and a bow on the neck for the boys.  My students put blacks stripes on the legs if they like to eat turkey for Thanksgiving.  I have only one student that doesn't eat turkey.  The stripes are suppose to be differnet colors depending if they like white or dark meat.  My students aren't picky.  They like it all!  We could have done more for the glyph, but I basically just wanted to have an art project for my students to make.


Next week I have the entire week off.  I plan on doing some baking.  I surf many baking blogs and came across this scrumptious looking pumpkin bread with streusel topping at Bakingdom.

This pumpkin cinnamon streusel coffee cake also looks delicious!   Hop on over to Two Peas & Their Pod for the recipe.

Here is another delicious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Coffee Cake from the Galley Gourmet.  Now to decide which one to make.   What are some of your favorite fall recipes?


ELA Spiral Review

I have just completed my ELA Spiral Review Weeks 21-28 for second grade.  This Daily ELA Spiral Review is a great way to start the day with your second grade students! It is designed to help the students get extra practice and review grammar skills that have been taught in class.

Most of the concepts covered are aligned with the Common Core Standards.

These worksheets have greatly helped my students to score well on the state test. Many questions are formatted like the state test.

The following skills that are covered in this packet for 2nd grade includes:

-Identifying nouns and verbs
-Prefixes and suffixes
-Multiple meaning words
-Antonyms and synonyms
-Spelling patterns
-Main idea
-Quotation marks
-Identifying complete sentences

Each page is designed to be cut in half to save on paper and to be a quick activity. This is an excellent way to review 2nd grade ELA skills.
